Despite the terribly windy and cold weather, the turn out was tremendous and people flocked in droves to see what was on offer.
The Cobden Rural Fire Brigade played a huge part in promoting safety to the community through the supply of information which was made readily available to the public and the amount of ‘fun stuff’ which was given out to littlies.
The day began slowly, with the rain coming and going, as Cobden CFA volunteers prepared their truck for the street parade before situating the vehicle beside the District 6 Marquee which was equipped with information packs and goodies. The walls of the marquee, which were filled with information, were a highlight and certainly envied by many other stall holders. With the help of Kim Stanley-Eyles, Community Fireguard Coordinator, the endless colouring sheets, games and activities that she supplied were an attraction to people of any age.
This event is an annual occasion which is enjoyed and well supported by the locals of Cobden and surrounding districts and brings many hours of entertainment to the community. So this time next year, feel free to pop by and support this small town and its local fire brigade.
On behalf of the Cobden Fire Brigade and myself, I would like to thank all who contributed to this day, the members who volunteered their time, Betty Robilliard and Kim Stanley-Eyles.
